Become a Sponsor

Be a part of Boston's largest community building event, change lives across the state–and put your brand in front of passionate, engaged consumers.

On Sunday, May 7th, 2017, the 49th annual Walk for Hunger will unite more than 30,000 people on the Boston Common to make a powerful statement about hunger in Massachusetts. 

The Walk has been a time-honored expression of care for individuals in need across our state, and the power of our shared commitment to the common good. Money raised from the Walk and 5K Run is used to develop and fund hundreds of critical programs that provide hunger relief to families and individuals across the state. 

The Walk for Hunger crosses economic, cultural, social, and generational lines, bringing people from all walks of life together for a day of family, friends, and fun. 

If your organization wants to...

  • Show its investment and pride in our community

  • Align itself with an organization that is addressing food security, sustainability, environmental responsibility, child wellness, education, and much more

  • Connect with passionate, engaged consumers who invest in brands that share their values...

...then you will want to be there on May 7th, 2017.
